BMW is using this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este to unveil the BMW Concept 8 Series, the essence of a modern-day BMW coupe wrapped up in an enthralling design study. The study car will serve as a taster of a forthcoming BMW model – the new BMW 8 Series Coupe, slated for launch in 2018 and part of the biggest model offensive in the company’s history.
BMW is Ready for the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring
The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring is the highlight of our European GT season in 2017. No other manufacturer has competed in this event with as much success as BMW. With 19 overall wins, BMW has been part of the 24h Nürburgring success story since 1970, and has shaped the event. The fans reward our teams with fantastic support every year and we’re certain the same will be true in 2017. The ‘Green Hell’ has become a second home for BMW Motorsport and the M Festival, which has turned into a permanent fixture on the support program of the 24-hour race.
To enjoy sporting success on the Nordschleife, you need experienced teams and reliable, fast drivers. We will compete with both once again this season, as well as competitive cars – the BMW M6 GT3 in particular. This may just be our biggest and best squad of all time at the Nürburgring. But it will, of course, once again be an extremely difficult race – due to the demanding track, the strong competition and all the surprises that a 24-hour race in the Eifel mountains has in store.
